    I posted this over in PHP but idk if that is the right place/active?


    Ok so I have two themes 1). ProReview and 2) U-Design. The only think I like about ProReview is their "Review" feature, which allows me to easily write reviews, and place them on pages with nice features. You can see here how it looks in the dashboard http://imgur.com/pHmzttf

    However the rest of the ProReview theme sucks, and I like to use U-Design. So I went into the files of the ProReview theme, and thought if I just transferred the Reviews.php, and review-single.php over to the U-Design file that I would get the above "Review" feature. http://imgur.com/sWrnMbz However that didn't work, and I obviously hardly have any idea as to what I am doing so can someone help?

    Here is the ProReview theme from this thread

    and here is the U-design theme from this thread

    Again if this isn't possible, or if I need to ask somewhere else please tell me! Thanks so very much!

    It could be possible if its modularized. You can look through both themes and see if you can transfer files between them before importing the final zipped theme.

    From the ProReview files you'd want 4 things.

    1. The layout design for the review forms(the display part of the review).
    2. The CSS styling(defines the colors, fonts, layout properties).
    3. The backend SQL format(the format reviews will be saved in db).
    4. SQL script / scripts(save and retrieve reviews saved in db).

    You'd take those things and re-implement in the U-Design skin.

    Easiest method could be to find a review plugin for wordpress or that skin that was plug and play.
